A sway control unit is an inexpensive solution to
the problem of a wandering trailer. CURT sway control units are designed
to attach to your vehicle and trailer at the coupling point and
counteract any lateral movement in your trailer, keeping your tow load
straighter on the road and giving you more control over your vehicle.
The sway bar uses a material like that used in brake pads to provide the
necessary resistance while still allowing your vehicle to complete
proper turns with your trailer attached. The sway control mounts onto
the frame of your trailer and connects to the vehicle's ball mount using
a separate trailer ball from that used for coupling the trailer.
sway controls are adjustable and easy to install. They come with a sway
unit, a trailer-mounted attachment ball and bolts, a hitch-mounted
attachment ball, a weld-on tab, a mount reinforcement plate and
attachment clips. Though a weight distribution hitch is not an ideal
solution for trailer sway on its own, CURT weight distribution hitches
are made to be combined with a sway control unit and many are available
with a sway controls included for a complete package. CURT also carries
ball mounts that are specially designed to work with a sway control kit,
having a sway tab welded right onto the ball mount platform.
